I got my first shipment of meds and supplies from Defy yesterday morning and immediately went up to the bathroom and mixed up my HCG and took my injections and AI.
What a difference a day makes. I didn’t really feel anything yesterday but today I am starting to feel the effects a little. A little more energy and initiative. I don’t know, maybe it’s my imagination but I’m a little cranky and if I’m being honest I kind of like it. I’m feeling better today than yesterday for sure and am thinking I may feel even better tomorrow.
I was going to let my last thread be my “log/journal” but I think it makes sense to start a proper thread to chart my progress.
I took the day before Thanksgiving off and set up a 20 foot “mega-tree” (Christmas light tree I designed/created). I took me all day in near freezing temps and I was a mess on Thanksgiving still and a little yesterday. One of the reasons I sought out this therapy is that I noticed it got dramatically harder for me to do routine home maintenance around 3 years ago. I’m only 52 but felt like I was not recovering well from a day of yard work, exercise etc… and I like to exercise.
So that’s where I am right now. I’ll note my observations or post questions here.
Sorry for creating another thread but I think in it’s appropriate.
